Teacher comment

It was the last section of the class and I wanted my learners to understand the grammatical traits of the linkers because it is also important to use the punctuation marks correctly. In other words, you should know the linkers in order to use punctuation correctly.

Learner comments

Kullanılan sınıfla kullanılmayan sinif arasındaki farklılığa bakarak akilli tahtanın faydaları ve zararlari hakkında daha net fikir sahibi olabiliriz. Böyle bir deney yapmadan da faydalı olacağı cok acık.
